Why do we have such a fascination with skulls? You don’t get a skull until it’s bare down to the bone- after someone or something has passed away, if we’re talking about the real thing. For the longest time, skulls always creeped me out, like its soul was still around and would put a curse on anyone who messed with it. I know such a thing wouldn’t happen, but in our culture, skulls are associated with Halloween and death. Rather semi-negative things.
It was not until I started looking for bar stools of my own that I had noticed that bar stool are not typically used to make a statement, but rather to blend in to allow the kitchen as a whole to be the star of the show.

Who doesn’t love a bright and cheerful bedroom? I would think it would be more motivating to wake up to and get out of bed. But I can’t imagine anything more cozier than a dark bedroom when going to bed at night or in the colder weather. I’m constantly back and forth on which way I would like to go when we get a house, so I decided to do a little round up to see if it sways me one way or the other.
Having some chairs in a circle surrounding a coffee table is a refreshing way to mix up seating arrangements. Typically there’s a couch or two involved in seating arrangement. I find it somehow more intimate and inviting to have conversations in this set up.
I don’t know about you, but this makes me want to gather around and gossip!
Although the popularity for tropical leaves has been around for a while, I actually did not entirely get on board until I saw these pillows on the couch of the blogger behind Bliss at Home, Kristin’s living room.
